British Ceramics Biennial

11 September 2021 @ 10:00 am - 17 October 2021 @ 5:00 pm

British Ceramics Biennial returns to Stoke-on-Trent with a vibrant five-week festival of new artist commissions, exhibitions and hands-on events that celebrate the life, character and creativity that ceramics bring to the city.

The post-industrial Spode factory site in the heart of Stoke Town will be transformed and animated by the UK’s leading ceramic artists and emerging talents, many of them taking inspiration from the city’s industrial heritage and transforming tradition in a contemporary way. For the first time BCB will also curate an online programme of films, tours and events for those unable to visit in person. Spode’s iconic China Hall is the focal point of the festival, with AWARD and Fresh exhibitions taking centre stage. Fresh will bring together up to 25 early career ceramic artists, while AWARD will feature work from 10 of the UK’s most innovative ceramic artists.  You can read more about the festival highlights here.
